On June 6, 2013 TransCanada Corporation officially released our 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility Report. The 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report was released during Canadian Environment Week as a testament to our commitment to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner, while recognizing the interests of our stakeholders.

Our 2013 CSR Report is focused on 10 areas of key importance to both us and to our stakeholders. These areas of key importance were identified using TransCanada’s materiality process and our report highlights our successes and challenges in these areas. Check our TransCanada 2013 CSR Report campaign for FMRs on each of our 10 material areas of focus.

Today we are highlighting Responsible Stakeholder Relations.

Across thousands of North American communities, TransCanada's values — Integrity, Responsibility, Collaboration and Innovation — lay the foundation for how we work with each other and with our stakeholders. We demonstrate our commitment to each of our neighbours every single day, because it's the right thing to do.

And we're committed to earning social license to operate wherever we do business. TransCanada's Stakeholder Relations Framework describes social acceptance as "the level of acceptance and approval continually granted to an organization's operations or projects by the local community and other stakeholders."
